I have a mac system which has a vmware windows system installed. Besides I have two monitors. Now I want to show windows in one monitor and mac in another monitor. I can drag the vmware to another monitor, But when I maximize the vmware, then vmware will occupy the two monitors, the mac system will disappear. Anyone know the solution for this problem ? BTW my colleague's machine do not have problem, and we have the same hardware, so I think this is a software configuration problem

Thank you in advance.

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

This may well depend on your monitor configuration. If you have the two monitors configured as a single horizontal span then maximise will maximise to both windows. If you have the monitors configured as independent, then you should be able to maximise to a single one.

For monitor configuration on OSX, open System Preferences > Displays
